Man in the middle | Oliver Langford
Oliver Langford will be the man in the middle when Swansea City host Stoke City at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday (3pm).
The West Midlands official will take charge of the Swans for the first time this season. Last term he oversaw the defeats at home to Ipswich and away to Hull.
Langford is in his 11th season as an EFL referee, and has refereed in the Championship long enough to have officiated in Swansea games during the club’s previous spell in the second tier.
He will be assisted by Robert Hyde and Adam Crysell. Rob Smith will be the fourth official.
